King Protea.... is in bloom at the moment. Here are some pics it's surviving quite happily under the eaves of the house and seems to cope with all the horrible cold Christchurch weather.
This skirt is made out of a fine stretch crinkly knit fabric which actually needed lining. I chose not to line it because I had nothing to line the skirt with...So I have settled for an under-skirt to stop it being so see through. The pattern I used was the Ladies Yoga A-Line-Skirt and I made a shorter version earlier and it can be found here.

wash just twist it and it stays all nice and crinkly.

|Off to explore the neighbourhood.|
I went for a swim this morning and I found a giraffe standing tall outside the pool....The giraffe is part of the 'Wild n Art Project'. The fibreglass giraffe stands 2.5 metres high, and is part of a sculpture trail here in Christchurch. You can find this giraffe outside the main door at the Jellie Park Aquatic Centre.

Put your sunglasses on this is so bright....eek! The pattern I used for this yoga skirt is from Jocole....I didn't have much fabric (it's a 4 way stretch) and it was a bit of a squeeze to cut out and keep the pattern matching. I finished off the hemming with a cover stitch.
